Winter weather has arrived, and so has the annual Realtors Blanket Drive. Last year, more than 500 bags of blankets, coats, hoodies, socks and underwear were collected from people across the lower mainland.
Those donations were distributed to those in need, when they were needed the most.
Any Real Estate office will gladly accept donations of gently used blankets, coats, hoodies, and new packaged socks and underwear. In Agassiz, donations can be dropped off at RE/MAX, #2-1824 Agassiz-Rosedale Highway. In Harrison, they can be dropped off at Sutton Group West Coast Realty, #107-196 Esplanade Ave. Both offices are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
All items collected during the time frame of Nov. 17 to 24 will be distributed free of charge in each community. In Chilliwack, they will be given to Ruth and Naomi’s and the new Cyrus Centre for youth. In Agassiz the donations will go to Community Services and in Hope, the Joshua Project.
